PAGE 4 THE CAROLINA JOURNAL WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1966 ■I ■> \ • * Mike Ridge shows the stride that brought him a third place finish in Laurinburg. 49ers Keep Close To Vet Runners The fledgeling cross countrj team, led by freshman Mike Ridge, gave St. Andrews’ seasoned crew a run for their money in Laurin burg last Friday afternoon. St. Andrews came out on top 21 to 34 Low score wins in cross country. Jim Smith of St. Andrews was first to finish the four-mile course, trotting home in 22 minutes and 48 seconds. The second and third place finishers were also from St. Andrews. Charlotte’s Mike Ridge scam pered to fourth place with a time of 26 minutes and 4 seconds. Ht was followed closely by John Laf- ferty, whose time was 26 minutes and 43 seconds, good en ough for fifth place finish, Jerry Anthony finished sixth for the Forty-Niners. Other Charlotte men to place in the top were Ronnie Payne Changes Made In Library During tlic summer months, members of tlie library staff eff ected several changes and made considerable progress on projects already underway. The most ob vious alteration is tlie furnishing of the space formerly used as an auditorium. All books classified “PZ” through “Z” are now shel ved in tills area. In addition, study carrels are provided for tlie individual student. This room is reserved for tlie per son who needs a quiet retreat for complete concentration. The reclassification of tlie books from Dewey to die Library of Congress system progressed rap idly. At tlie end of tlie summer only books in die 800’s (Liter ature) remained to be reclassi fied. The library staff hopes to have tliese completed by Christ mas. The library has compiled 15,- 261 books in die past twelve mon ths. This about one-fourtii as manj' volumes as are in the entire coll ection. Miss Susan Crane, Acquisitions Librarian, and Miss Carroll Hicks, cataloger, are two additions to die library staff. and Bill Redman, finishing ninth and tenth respectively* Forty-Niner thin-clads who fail ed to make the top ten were Bucky Weston, Bill Weatherly and Lynn Griffin. Mike Ridge said he felt “Pretty good’’ about the team’s showing. “We bunched three guys in the top six and kept St. Andrews from running away from us. They were supposed to beat us pretty bad, “he said. “We have a lot of potential. Our oldest man is only a junior. 1 think we’ll improve a lot as we run more and more.” Ridge also said the team is looking forward to another match at St. Andrews the second week in October. This will be a three- way match between Lynchburg Col lege, St. Andrews, and Charlotte. Last Friday’s overland duel was to have been a three-way affair but College of Charleston’s team did not show up. Snipes Leaves Squad Robbie Snipes has been forced to curtail his cross-coimtry par ticipation due to poor circulation in his legs. “My legs are alrightfor tlie first couple of miles,” said Snipes, “But tlien tlie circulation gets pretty bad and Uiey start to ache. I’ve had tliis trouble for a long time,” he added. Coach Murpliy has advised Rob bie to continue working on his running, but at his own speed. It is doubtful tliat he will be able to rejoin tlie team. Robbie has been replaced on tlie cross-country team by Bill Red man, who made tlie trip to Lau rinburg in his place.
